Happy Hiking: Hazard Creek Trail

We thought our hike yesterday to Goose Creek Falls was awesome, and while we hoped to find another good one, we didn’t expect to find one even better.  The six-mile, moderate Hazard Creek Trail with two waterfalls and wildflowers was spectacular!


Happy Hiking: Goose Creek Falls

Goose Creek Falls is located in Payette National Forest near McCall, Idaho and the Brundage Mountain Ski Area.  There are a few ways to hike it, one hike is 5.8 miles round-trip and another is 3 miles roundtrip.  We were going to take the longer way, but after seeing a couple of mediocre reviews on AllTrails, we took the shorter route.

After having been there, I’m uncertain how this hike could be called “boring”.   We loved it!  We began on a soggy Wednesday morning around 10:30. Only two others were in the large parking area with a pit toilet when we arrived.  Perhaps the snow/rain mix for the previous five days had something to do with it!  Regardless, it was great to have Dom and Sue join me on my road trip adventure for a few days.
